Tilda Swinton/Andy Serkis Duet Probably Imminent

Remember Patton Oswalt's Oscar-snubbee Twitter fan fiction -- specifically the part wherein Tilda Swinton and Andy Serkis rocked out together to "Life on Mars"? Well, Jimmy Fallon or Stephen Colbert or someone might want to get on that, if Swinton's priceless reaction is any indication.

Per Vulture:

"Oh, how fun! Is he there now?" she said. We explained that it was merely his Twitter feed. "But is it real? We should go! Where is he?" she asked, grabbing for her keys and heading for the door. Actually, we explained, he was kidding. "Oh, he’s making jokes. What a shame. I think we should do it for real. How faaabulous!" she said. When she read the tweet, "Serkis & Tilda are singing 'Is There Life on Mars?'" Swinton said, "That’s a dare! That’s an excellent dare. Okay, Patton, you’re on. Let’s get Andy and let’s go for it!"

Genius. Or maybe Swinton could finally fulfill her promise to portray Conan O'Brien on Conan, introducing her and Serkis? There would not be enough health insurance in the world to cover all the exploded heads.

    ... and then dress as monkeys and start overturning things in LA. Get arrested doing that, and no one will mistake where the real vitality was.

      I want to give you a bag full of mushrooms, a notebook and a dozen crayons and leave you by yourself for a few days and then see what kind of screenplay magic you come up with. Amazing.

    Good God, I love that woman. She and Patton ought to collaborate on a screenplay... An absurdist Derek Jarman homage where Patton recites Star Wars trivia in front of a black curtain while Tilda tries on a series of increasingly large hats to a series of arias, then reverts to a simple pillbox look and curls up in a ball... FIN.
